She had an impactful appearance with home production Mardaani (2014) when she impressed one and as the power-packed policewoman.
Rani Mukerji then took time off for motherhood and is now all set for her onscreen return. Yash Raj Films’ Hichki, to be directed by Siddharth P Malhotra, will feature Rani in a lead role.
Rani will be seen in a positive and inspiring story about a woman who turns her biggest weakness into her biggest strength.
Siddharth has earlier directed Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor and Kajol-starrer We Are Family.
Speaking about the comeback, Rani said in a press statement, “I was looking for a script that would challenge and excite me, and Hichki came my way. Each of us has a weakness that pulls us back. It could be a disability or any condition but if we just look at it as simply a hiccup, we can emerge as a winner. It won’t come in the way of achieving our dreams. Hichki is built on this positive premise and I decided to take it up.”
Hichki will be Maneesh Sharma’s third film as a producer with Yash Raj Films after Dum Laga Ke Haisha and the forthcoming Meri Pyaari Bindu. For Siddharth, this will be his first film with Yash Raj Films.
